Hank North, Photojournalist
|Hank North, Photojournalist|
|Locations||Anywhere, 12-36 turns after leveling to level 12, reappearing every 10-15 turns until you defeat him|
A flash of light forces you to shield your eyes. As you blink away the spots, you see a thickly-built man in a black jacket and olive-drab slacks, checking the settings on a large camera hanging around his neck.
"Who the heck are you?" you ask, increasingly annoyed by these interruptions.
"I'm Hank," he says. "Hank North. Remember that name, 'cause the whole world's gonna know it in three days when I get the scoop."
"Fine, whatever. Are you planning on killing me with that camera? Because..." Your voice trails off as Hank hefts a kayak paddle with a chainsaw duct-taped to the end. "...Oh."
He swings and misses you, but hits another even douchier photographer, who beats the crap out of you. Ooh! Ooh! Ugh! Ooh! Oof!
He tries to eat a piece of pie, grabs the plate underneath the pie instead, and hurls it at you. Argh! Ouch! Oof! Ouch! Ouch!
He swigs from a bottle of orange juice, then beats you with a pair of ice-skates tied together like nunchucks. Argh! Oof! Ouch! Argh! Ow!
He picks up a barbecue grill by the legs and beats you with it. Argh! Ooh! Argh! Oof! Eek!
He hits you five times with a golf club, putting himself two over par. Ugh! Oof! Ooh! Argh! Oof!
He shoots you with a revolver, in an underwhelming but effective attack. Ow! Ouch! Argh! Ouch! Ouch!
He beats you with a golf club until it falls apart, then a hockey stick until that falls apart, then a skateboard until that falls apart. Argh! Argh! Oof! Oof! Ouch!
He beats you with a golf club until it falls apart, then a hockey stick until that falls apart, then a skateboard until that falls apart.
He charges toward you, but gets in a brief tussle with an obese clown.
He charges toward you, but a civilian who needs to be escorted to safety distracts him.
He charges toward you, but his walkie-talkie beeps and sends him on another pointless side-quest.
He charges toward you, but accidentally hits another photographer, who then beats the crap out of him.
"You know how to use that?" you ask, as he pulls out a pistol.
"Kinda," he says, sarcastically. "I've covered wars, you know."
He charges toward you, but gets a notification of another side quest. "DAMMIT!" he shouts. "ALL I WANT TO DO IS KILL ZOMBIES WITH MY AWESOME WEAPONS! WHY WON'T ANYONE LET ME!" (FUMBLE!)

Occurs after reaching level 12 on a Zombie Slayer path.
- This monster cannot be copied.
- A reference to Frank West of the Dead Rising series.
- Like other Zombie Slayer hunters, this character is known for facing zombies. In the first game, Frank West is trapped in a mall, and uses anything and everything as a weapon to fight against an endless horde of zombies.
- The "paddlesaw" is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, which starred a different protagonist. Frank himself was able to use this weapon in Dead Rising: Off the Record.
